Bisexual and Polyamorous: How My Pendulum Swings

on Tuesday, 26 September 2017. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates

For someone who doesn't play by society's sexual rules, the secret to happiness is living in the present.

“Why can’t bisexuals choose a side? You’re so greedy!” 

“If you’re polyamorous, does that mean you sleep with everybody?” 

“Is every sexual experience like an Eyes Wide Shut orgy?”

There isn’t a bisexual and/or polyamorous person on the planet who hasn’t heard these questions verbatim or a variation of them. I take it in stride these days, but I also recognize that the exalting of heterosexuality and monogamy is problematic for those of us who don’t fit neatly into these boxes. As it is Bisexual Visibility Week, I hope that sharing my experiences as a polyamorous bisexual can dispel some of the misinformation and crank open closed minds.
